From the source: Nintendo... Pokemon Direct + Game Bundles!

Something is different about today's post. Yes, it's been awhile since Pokemon was front and center... but that's not it (no... no... no). SDGT is now an official Humble Partner(!)... meaning we will be representing with all sorts of awesome affordable deals on games! How good of a deal you ask? You can get multiple games starting at $1 while showing your love & support of SDGT at the same time!

By the way... Sega should consider Phantasy Star Online 2 for the Nintendo Switch due to its portability, it's a perfect fit in my opinion and i'd be there ready to buy. There should also be a Phantasy Star Online Steam Edition!

Anyway... on to Pokemon Direct!
